Japan Airlines to offer content streaming on personal devices


Japan Airlines to offer content streaming on personal devices

The Gogo Vision service will be installed across Japan Airlines’ domestic fleet in time for summer 2014.

Japan Airlines’ domestic passengers will be able to rent and stream movies and television programmes on their own electronic devices thanks to a new agreement with Gogo.

Gogo, which recently announced that it will supply Japan Airlines with in-flight Wi-Fi, has now confirmed that it will also supply the airline with its Gogo Vision service. Passengers should be able to make use of these new amenities in the summer.

Yoshiharu Ueki, President of Japan Airlines (JAL), said: “Adding Gogo Vision to our fleet is just another way for us to bring passengers a unique and completely refreshing onboard experience. JAL passengers will be able to use the Internet to stay connected and productive, and Gogo Vision will help keep them entertained.”

Niels Steenstrup, Senior Vice President, Global Airlines Sales, Gogo, added: “Gogo Vision is a natural add-on service to Gogo’s connectivity product as it adds very limited incremental costs to the airline once the connectivity service is in place. Gogo Vision becomes an extremely low-cost way for airlines to offer a robust in-flight entertainment solution to its passengers that they can then stream to their own Wi-Fi enabled devices.”

Future Travel Experience Up in the airIf you are committed to enhancing the onboard passenger experience, make sure you attend the FTE Up in the Air conference, which will take place at our flagship event, FTE Global 2014, in Las Vegas from 24-26 September 2014. The theme of the event is 'Redefining the end-to-end passenger experience'.

The Up in the Air conference will focus on all things in-flight – including IFE&C, passenger and crew connectivity, cabin design, passenger comfort, personalisation and ancillary revenue generation – and we look forward to playing an important role in shaking up the passenger experience in the air, which has evolved very little in the last 20 years, unlike on the ground.
